Psychedelics: Lifting The Veil

In Psychedelics: Lifting The Veil (16 min. TED talk video) researcher Robin Carhart-Harris characterizes psychedelics as allowing access to a more childlike, imaginative mind, with freer communication pathways and expanded visual processing similar to the dream state.

He describes some apparent good results with psychedelics (I believe LSD here) for depression, with significant short term results for treatment resistant depression.
